ONVIF for ZoneMinder – Streaming
I will post further articles on ONVIF, ZoneMinder and camera control here.
Where to get it
Surely you have been wondering where you can buy this really cool software.
The bad news is: You can’t, it’s free software. (See the ZoneMinder license information here).
The good news is: If everything goes well at least the ONVIF probing is to be included as an option in the ZoneMinder 1.29 release.
And if you want to give the ZoneMinder maintainers and me a hand you can speed up things by testing the code with your ONVIF camera. We need test results for different camera manufacturers and models.
How can I help test the code on my ONVIF camera? I just bought an TOP-201 (http://www.ipcamtalk.com/ip-cameras/1812-review-top-201-super-mini-720p-hd-ip-cam-cheapest-ip-cam.html?highlight=flicker#post15188) camera and wanted to use it with ZoneMinder. Manually typing in the RTSP info doesn’t seem to work, but it does seem to work with a few ONVIF client apps on my Android tablets.
Interested in getting it to work and happy to help with testing.
I have not put together detailed building instructions for my patches. It
should be easy though. You build from git as always. You only have to use
a different URL:
I have two code branches:
A – The current pull request
You should start with this. The changes to standard ZoneMinder are minimal
but you get the option to try out ONVIF support.
B – https://github.com/altaroca/ZoneMinder/tree/onvif
My latest developments. This has more features but may be more
Please let me know of any problems or success.
I don t understand how add onvif search in zoneminder pannel. I need a guide for zoneminder in Ubuntu server 14.
Thanks a lot
